The President UPU Youth wing worldwide Hon. Comrade Ovie Igho , a former Delta State University Students Union Government President, an indigene , a Pan Niger Delta youth leader has directed the vice Chancellor of Delta State University, Abraka Professor Victor Peretomode to with immediate effects revisit the 2017/2018 academic session acceptance fee/school fee to avoid to total show down of the university. He warned the school management and senate council to behave like fathers and mothers to their children who cares and protect their wards irrespective of linage.
Because if the school management and senate council do not care about the less privilege wards who also attend the university, that is they are calling for the university close down because the university was established to bring close education to the people and encourage every child to earn tertiary certificate even with minimal money and not to discourage us.
He also call on the student bodies such as Students Union Government, JCC/NANS to step up their mandate mechanisms to protect and fight against any form of oppression, humiliation and extortions by the any institutional management because they are be voted to act as intermediary between the school management and the students and not other way around.
Though , he said he is on the top of issue as well to prefer the best ways forward to accommodate all qualified or admitted students into the school without any inches of financial constrains as the proposed fees has already threaten many to withdraw even when they have not be admitted.
The President described the actions of the school management and senate council as mischievous, barbaric and evil due to high level of greed, corruption and avarice in public offices. But we will not accept this nonsense and injustice. Its a big shame and disgrace to the delta state government to deprived Deltans of education due to selfishness, wickedness and greed of some individuals enrichment. Meanwhile, he said the community has resolved to push adhesively without fear or favor of any kind, he asserted.
